Carousell Culture

End-to-End Ownership
Top

We start from the fundamental belief that our people are talented, passionate, and hungry to learn and act in the best interest of the company. 

With this starting point, we take extreme ownership of what we do. Extreme ownership means that everyone, as a team member, will be part of various phases of the lifecycle of each feature or improvement, from ideation to post-launch results. The impact of what we do highly depend on each person's contribution. Extreme ownership means also taking the necessary steps to ensure that the people we work with have absolute clarity about what we do and our progress.

This extends to our career as well - we take an active interest to clarify any doubts about our scope or role and check how we are doing from our managers through 1:1 sessions.

Product Love
Top

We celebrate big or small wins to appreciate the winners and inspire people to want to win more. When we get the high of winning, we just want to win more and more. We do this through various ways, such as Slack #kudos, recognition initiatives such as Tech Toasts, in-person, Town Halls etc.

Every team member, regardless of tech or non-tech, is included in our internal dogfooding process. We also encourage our teammates to flag issues and bug reports. It is all hands on deck to ensure our user gets the best product experience. 

We conduct user research both regularly to get a pulse and also on a specific-needs basis when we want to give our users some early prototypes or drafted ideas. It's a very rewarding process everyone is willing to join, engineers included, as it's the closest we can get to our users and we can learn quickly whether things could work.

How open is the management team in discussing turnovers?

We believe in engaging in regular and open communication, which includes celebrating wins and learning from mistakes. 

One of the ways we do this is through our regular town hall meetings at the Carousell Group and Carousell brand level, which we have been holding since the start. We share important business and market updates from both country and team function perspectives, any key organisation changes, and celebrate achieving our must-win battles. The teams have the chance to share about the projects they’re working on, and can also ask any question during our Q&A session. Senior leaders and founders will answer every top-voted question no matter how difficult the question is. 

What percentage of senior engineers and managers are promoted from within the team?

Half of our current engineering managers were previously senior engineers. We don't consider this a promotion but a lateral move to a new role.

Do engineers have opportunities to work on different projects?

Whenever there are projects or areas that engineers are passionate about, they can coordinate with their manager or other team members on how to best organise their time to work on projects they like, even when they are outside of the typical team scope.
